YA?Delightful stories, written over 100 years ago, about life on Old Squire's farm down east in Maine. They center around six cousins, orphaned by the Civil War, who live there with their grandparents. These 36 selections, penned by the popular American storyteller, provide a nostalgic picture of farm life as they recount county fairs, Fourth of July celebrations, a ram who chased away a thief, a little tinkering with Grandmother's elderberry wine, and pranks at the swimming hole. Values of hard work, individual responsibility, and honesty are inherent in the daily lives of the characters. As in stories by Mark Twain, reading about good times in days past are a wonderful diversion.?Becky Burgee, Langley High School, McLean, VA

Humor and nostalgia blend in Stories from the Old Squire's Farm, a collection of fine tales detailing the lives of six young children orphaned by the Civil War. These are filled with humor, insights, and lively accounting in the manner of Mark Twain: they present an excellent atmosphere of the 1800s and are recommended for a wide audience of literature lovers. -- Midwest Book Review

just LOVED this book, so I knew it must be really good. Another granddaughter is reading
the copy I ordered and really enjoys it. It gives a great picture of life on a farm years ago
when life was not necessarily easier, but it was definitely simpler. Family values are upheld.
